of the techniques that the local authorities and federal authorities used to get around the booby traps, the meant went through the window. you saw at that video, them working through the video and they used robots to go inside instead of a person at risk and they used water not only to surround explosives, but used a water blast to short out that main control panel. ultimately, there was a point where the situation was deemed safe enough where people could go inside and gather up some of the rigged explosives. some of those were fireworks rigged specially picked up and put into a dump truck filled with sand and driven to a remote location south of aurora here. and ultimately, those fireworks, the other type of makeshift explosives, were destroyed in a controlled manner. and then the evidence started coming out of the apartment. about 8 p.m. local time people saw laptop computer and a hard drive come out of this apartment and that should prove to be a treasure trove in terms of evidence. diaries this guy wrote and plans laid out and investigators are hoping to find a path of that on the computer a

, that the progress that we're making is moving us forward. >> wow, i don't know if she's on vacation in new hampshire or on mars, i can't figure it out, but the fact of the matter is, people are not better off today than they were three or four years ago. >> harris: yus just a reminder, only four more monthly reports on jobs left before the november elections, four more chances for president obama to try to prove the economy is on the rebound. steve centanni is live in washington with more reaction, and the issue is sticking around as we head into a new week, how is the obama administration defending itself in the wake of the dismal numbers? >> thing we're going in the right direction, more jobs are added in the private sector, but acknowledging at the same time not enough jobs are created and we still have a long way to go. >> we saw on friday that our economy is growing and we're adding jobs. the president believes that-- >> not enough jobs. >> we're not growing fast enough and we're not adding enough jobs. >> and what's the argument, after four years, what is then the argument that. >> well. >> re

to let us know his whole apartment was booby trapped and if anyone opened that door, there would have been more carnage. >> it's interesting that he did that. the ultimate plan -->> i can't figure that out. >> i think his ultimate plan was to get away and when he was, then, caught in the movie theater parking lot, i'm not sure why he decided it was a good thing and decided to tell the police officers. otherwise, more lives would have been lost at his apartment complex. back to the court hearing for a minute, the bond will be set. obviously he's probably not going to get out on bond with the crimes that he's facing. it's not expected to last long at all and, of course, the prosecution has 72 hours to file formal charges. and they undoubtedly will release some of that evidence in the court hearing today but probably have enough evidence to be able to hold him. >> while we learn more about what will happen during the suspect's court appearance today, family, friends and loved ones came together to remember the 12 lives cut short on friday. and there are still victims fighting for their

's offshore accounts. with vice president biden actually using today's speech to a prominent hispanic group to demand romney release more of his tax returns. >> he wants you to show your papers but he won't show us his. >> it's kind of fascinating. >> while the president pressured the republican opponent in an interview with wnur in new hampshire. what's important is if you are running for president the american people know who you are. and what you have done and that you are an open book. that has been true of every presidential candidate dating all the way back to romney's father. the president's push for more disclosure came three weeks after he invokeed executive privilege to shield attorney general eric holder from turning over more documents in the "fast and furious" scandal. >> bret: ed henry live on the north lawn. thank you. small business owners are more pessimistic than they have been in a while. new survey shows decline in optimism in june. wiping out all positive gains achieved this year. political uncertainty is said to be the primary cause. the fitch rating service is leaving

his comments out of context. trying to make him look bad. is he now back in the u.s. and on to the domestic campaign. shep. >> did the governor say he is concerned with the flap with the palestinians could hurt him if he becomes president? >> he did. as we were talking after the interview he said that it's the kind of thing that should he become president really make it difficult for him to help negotiate long-term peace in a two-state solution with the palestinians because of their hostility. what he said was that culture can actually determine outcomes and the comparison was the israeli economy to the palestinian economy. they were very upset. here is how he explained it. >> did not speak about the palestinian culture or the decisions made in their economy. that's an interesting topic that perhaps can deserve scholarly analysis. but i actually didn't address that instead, i will point out that the choice is a society makes has a profound impact on the economy and the vitality of that society. >> i know, i know. >> shepard: we all know now. >> and so mr. romney's pl
john barrasso, we'll talk to him about that. he joins us live later this hour. stay tuned. 35 minutes away on that. martha: boy, owl eyes when it comes to the economy today is on one place. that is fed chief ben bernanke. he will testify before congress. that starts in less than an hour. he will talk about the state of the u.s. economy and all of the recent numbers that we've seen point to a slowdown recurring in the u.s. economy. the big question will the fed intervene in any way? they don't have a whole lot of tools left in their tool box. we'll hear from the fed chief. his tone will be a big indication perhaps how the markets go this morning and what the reaction is to that. we're getting another indicator on the u.s. economy. it came out moments ago. labor department reported that consumer prices remain flat last month, held down chiefly by cheaper gas prices. seen them at the pump as they have been up having down over the past month or so. a speech by president obama give the other day stirred a lot of debate in the business community. we want to ask this gentleman about that, fo
economic news three months in a row now. are people just used to it? is it baked in? do they just accept where this economy is? we hope not. we hope that we don't accept these numbers regardless of the politics of it. you hope people don't accept this as a new norm. >> do they think that mitt romney could do better? >> that's the big question. >> we're going to explore all of that this morning. let us know what you think. find us on twitter. rest of your headlines. a lot more to tell you '. there has been a drone strike in northwestern pakistan and killed at least 15 suspected taliban militants. pakistani intelligence says this happens in a village in north waziristan. four missiles fired at compound believed to be owned by taliban commander. this comes as tension grows over those american drone strikes in the country. it's the first strike since pakistan reopened nato supply routes this past week. george zimmerman is a free man yet again this morning. here he is leaving a florida jail after posting the required 10 pierce of his $1 million bond. is he now staying in a temporary safe hous
with the governor and joins us live from jerusalem. good morning. >> hi, eric. while governor romney was at the wall with his wife. both of them were greeted by a throng of folks there. lots of shouts of approval and encouragement. for mr. romney, there is a foreign policy component to this. the former massachusetts governor is burnishing his foreign policy and international affairs credentials, in order to compete with the incumbent president. this is customary for candidates. mr. romney started his morning with a meeting with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu, amid reports that the white house had had talks with the israeli leaders and suggested contingency plans to go after iran and take out its nuclear weapons capability should they take it much further, if negotiations and talks were unavailable to change the course in tehran. mr. romney was clear in standing with benjamin netanyahu that he will take some cues from israel and is prepared to support the jewish state, should they decide to take military action on their own, in order to prevent iran from becoming a nuclear power. listen. >
by the remarks. another sign of tricky issue for them. john? >> ed henry at the white house for us. thanks. senior political analyst brit hume is here with his thought ox the penalty credit. good evening. >> welcome back. >> thank you. >> the fumblin fumbling in the y camp today explaining the governor's position on the supreme court finding that the healthcare fine is a tax is certainly embarrassing. it will be seen that the governor is unable to use the healthcare tissue his advantage. that doesn't mean that the issue will not work to his advantage anyway. that's because romneycare is unpopular as ever and the president owns it. it is his signature achievement and for much of the first two years he set aside all other priorities including the economy to push it through congress. romney meanwhile has pledged to repeal it. despite the healthcare skeleton in his closet. the question is this. will voters who want to get rid of obamacare, vote for obama because they have misgivings about the romney record on the issue? it's like the economy. democrats take comfort from poles that show people
journal" which is owned by the parent company of this network. john bussey is with us. how do we process this? >>john: it is a very bad recession with an unusually bad effect on younger people. our economic supporter has a piece on this situation. if you look back to the last bad recession in the early 1980's, it went down and it came back. people lost jobs or could not find work and then they could it recovered quickly. this is taking so long that we are finding younger people are going, now, for years without finding a job. and the key thing is that at the beginning of your career, you move around a lot. you are chasing the brass ring trying to find what you want to do. the bulk of your income growth happens in those early years. so it is setting young people back in a number of bad ways. >>shepard: there is one way to look at that, that our economy and our model has not changed with the times in the way it has in other countries. >>guest: or if you have a recession brought on by a financial sector crisis, not a business sector crisis, where the inventories rise and you have to burn th
of a shootout on the u.s. side of the border that resulted in the death of a border patrol agent, brian terry. we will have much more, bill, coming up later in the show. >>> but right now some brand new reaction this morning from governor mitt romney as he wraps up his whirlwind, three-nation overseas tour today. the republican presidential candidate making a final stop in poland. that is where he stressed the friendship between washington and warsaw. listen. >> on behalf of my countrymen, i express deep appreciation for your willingness to fight with us, to stand with us, and to be our friends and in times of crisis and military conflict. heather: chief political correspondent carl cameron is live in the polish capital. that is where he had a chance to sit down with the presidential candidate earlier this morning. carl, you asked him to clarify a few points. what did he have to say? >> reporter: there has been this report that he offended palestinians the day before yesterday, excuse me, yesterday in jerusalem before coming here to poland before coming to a fund-raiser with jewish-american v
top people inside the department of justice alcohol tobacco and firearms and the u.s. attorney's office being sloppy, irresponsible and dishonest. accusing ken melson in the loop as disinterested atf director. that assistant director bill hoover being derelict in his duties, bill newell giving false testimony to congress. field operations mark chait, failing to supervise and bill newell doing something wrong and illegal. newell said he was not to blame. he was only following orders from the u.s. attorney's office but this report says that is not accurate. that the atf knew better but went along because it wanted make a big slash and establish a link between u.s. gun stores and mexican violence. rick. rick: what about the links to that violence in mexico, what do we hear about that in the report, william? >> reporter: it shows there was callous indifference or disregard to the casualties in mexico. in two members most as "fast and furious" guns were showing up at crime scenes in mexico, u.s. attorney, dennis berg says, i'm quoting, wow, frikin' a, those are already across the bo
't need a special council. we're going to have a couple of u.s. attorneys, one from d.c. and one from maryland, they're going to investigate which some say is political. clearly they work for the attorney general that works for the president. anyway, we'll play you -- we'll give you both the quotation. here first is senator feinstein on monday essentially taking aim at the white house for spilling the political beans, the secret beans. >> i think the white house has to understand that some of this is coming from its ranks. i don't know specifically where. but they're, i think, they have to begin to understand that and do something about it. >> and then up next, she again another statement just yesterday and we have this one for you, too. i stated that i did not believe the president leaked classified information. i shouldn't have speculated beyond that because of the fact of the matter is i don't know the source of the leaks. but, you know, this really brings up the issue of transparency as well which is something that the obama administration has promised from day one and if you'll
went from roughly, i think 6.2% now to 8.2%. and remember, he promised us we would be far more better shape than we are today. january 10 of 2009, if you want to know exactly what will happen when the stimulus bill passes take a look at the report prepared by the head of his council of economic advisors. it forecast unemployment would be 6% today. last year the administration forecast for economic growth this year was 4%. that is twice the rate that at best we're going to hit this year. no wonder, joe bide, actually captures reality of it recently when he got off message and said, quote, for millions of americans americans this is a depression. it ain't working. jon: you have to hand it to the white house for looking at the silver lining for these numbers. here is a statement from alan krueger, the current chairman of the council of economic voors advisors. he says in part, the economy moves in the right direction additional growth is needed to replace the jobs lost in the deep recession that began and the end of 2007. there is never an opportunity lost to remind us that all of this s

, explain to us what else this new report reveals. >> well, shepard, the report found that school administrators actually left a paper and email trail proving they knew more than they were willing to admit. on may 5th of 1998 after a boy's mother reported a possible sexual assault by jerry sandusky, the university senior vice president for business and finances own handwritten notes raise the question, quote: is this opening a pandora's box? other children? there is more. email from the school's athletic director revealed he changed his mind about reporting alleged abuse after talking with joe paterno. the report says failure to act put other children in danger. shep? >> shepard: david lee, joe paterno's family has issued a statement saying basically they don't buy any of this report. >> that's right. the panel issued a statement soon after the 276-page report was made public saying that although they are still reviewing its findings, they do reject some of its conclusions. the statement says, in part, and i quote: the idea that any sane, responsible adult would knowingly cover
. it will be a little longer than the first time that we had a court appearance by james holmes. tell us a little bit some of the other hearing matters that could come up. >> reporter: yes. judge william sylvester also has to make some ruling on a couple more motions. one is a motion by the defense regarding a package it said that in court documents that james holmes sent to his psychiatrist, dr. lynn fenton. the defense argued this package contained privileged information between patient and doctor and wants it turned over immediately. it accused the government leaking manufacturing to the media. 20 media organizations including fox news have a motion with the judge as well there is to unseal certain document in the case and the publics that legitimate interest knowing what action taken by a number of officials in the case. things get underway in the arapahoe court in a few minutes. back to you guys. jenna: alicia, thank you. rick: on to politics now and governor mitt romney wrapping up his high-profile three-nation tour in poland today. the republican presidential candidate is spending the last 36
of consecutive loss and that's what put us into the actual official recessionary status. by 2010 you had green arrows there up 2.4%, which looks like it heads toward a more healthy situation. remember for more context here, if you're in a really, healthy booming economy you're at 5, 6, even 7% growth which is what you usually see when you're starting it bounce out of a recessionary period. that's not what we're seeing here. back in 2007, take a look, 1.9%, in terms of real gdp growth. in 2004 woe were down at 3.5%. 05, 3.1%, and you can take a look how this chart has shaped up. and the number we got this morning, 1.5% growth, it is not a recessionary number as some people have been anticipating but it is not a lot of positive growth on the upside. we'll get one more number in october when we look at the next quarter gdp growth. that will come in right before the election period. rick? rick: switching gears for a minute let's talk about violent storms that caused serious damage in the northeast. check out this video of a transformer exploding behind a house in stony point new york. look at this
